Creating a Custom OAuth App

When to Create a Custom OAuth App

Creating a custom OAuth app is optional as the cmdlet is already registered with LinkedIn and you can connect with its embedded credentials.

You might want to create a custom OAuth app to change the information displayed when users log into the LinkedIn OAuth endpoint to grant permissions to the cmdlet.
